The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) was established to “protect the public and to maintain the reputation of the solicitors’ profession for honesty, probity, trustworthiness, independence and integrity.”

As such, the SDT has the power to strike off a solicitor from the roll, suspend a solicitor from practice, fine or reprimand a solicitor or make such other order as it thinks fit. Whilst over 90% of all cases brought before the SDT are brought by the SRA, it is open to anyone to bring a matter before it.

This book provides a unique step-by-step guide to the law and practice of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, from the issue of proceedings through to appeal. Its practical approach will help anyone who wishes to avoid the common pitfalls faced by unfamiliar users of the Tribunal.

It is the only comprehensive book available on SDT proceedings and it contains all the leading cases on Tribunal proceedings, many of which are not available on the internet, in one handy volume.
